    Vintage 14K gold pocket watch with a very interesting movement. Patek Philippe?

    I just purchased this beautiful 14k Gold 50mm watch, but can't seem to find any information on the movement and I am not the big watch maker in case I need to remove dial and such?

    Any Patek connoisseurs who can help me out. Very much appreciated.

    Thank you.Name:  foto 5.jpg

    Hi and welcome
    Nice piece, but I doubt it is a Patek Philippe movement.
    I can n ot see the inside of case either. But still think not Patek Philippe at all.

    i agree with adam. what makes you think patek?

    the lack of wolf's teeth stands out. although i'm not positive all pateks had that feature. many upper mid range to top tier manufacturers used a similar bridge layout.

    I am pretty sure it is an newer case for the movement - I just see many similarities to the Pateks I've been able to find. I guess I won't know before I remove the dial. Pre-1875 movement maybe. with no markings on the movement but behind the dial...

    Looks like there's a makers mark inside the case cover, are there any letters in the shield/mark ?

    Looking under a 20x loup it looks like a candleholder or a boat with a light stick? I've zoomed in.Name:  foto[1].JPG
